     1. GENERAL

     1.1 Purpose

     These instructions are applicable for Packing, Marking and Shipping of equipment and materials as
     specified in the respective Paul Wurth Purchase Orders or Contracts. These instructions form an
     integral part of the Purchase Order or Contract issued by an entity of the Paul Wurth Group,
     hereinafter mentioned as PAUL WURTH. Particular instructions mentioned in the individual
     Purchase Order or Contract prevail over the general instructions.

     1.2 Conditions

     These general instructions as well as any particular instructions (see appendixes) for specific items
     and/or projects are strictly to be adhered to. Suppliers who cannot meet these Instructions for
     Packing, Marking and Shipping shall inform PAUL WURTH immediately. The same obligation
     applies if for the equipment and/or materials to be delivered by the supplier the particular or general
     instructions are not appropriate, incomplete and/or wrong.

     Deviations from these instructions will only be accepted prior to written approval by PAUL WURTH.

     The packing shall be suitable to ensure that under multiple handling, normal shipping and storage
     conditions, no damage or corrosion shall occur to equipment and/or materials for a minimum period
     as specified in Appendix I hereto.

     The Supplier of equipment and/or materials that will be delivered to a warehouse for packing or will
     be packed in Supplier’s own warehouse by a specialized packing company shall act in accordance
     with the present instructions. PAUL WURTH reserves the right to designate a specialized company
     from time to time.


     1.3 Additions, exceptions and modifications

     There may be special requirements, more particularly in terms of climate conditions, or in relation
     with the duration of storage and/or mode of transport, which require that this document may have to
     be modified, replaced or cancelled while also additional instructions may be added by PAUL
     WURTH.

     Such additions, exceptions, modifications will be subject to written notification to be given by PAUL
     WURTH to the Supplier or to be added to Purchase Order or Contract.


     1.4 Responsibility and liability

     The Supplier will be held responsible for any damages and/or losses of all and any kind that may
     occur by not respecting these instructions.

     3. PACKING

     3.1 General

     The instructions herein shall be considered as general directives and minimal requirements, which
     are applicable to the packing of all equipment and materials. All packing must be in accordance to
     the specific requirements of the individual purchase order or contract as well as to the
     governmental regulations of the country of destination.

     The Supplier is responsible for the correct and adequate packing of the equipment and materials so
     that these equipment and materials will arrive at destination undamaged and the packing itself in
     such a condition that, if not otherwise required (Appendix I), it will be suitable for a minimum of 6
     months storage.

     3.2 Choice of the Packing Type and possible particular protection

     The choice of the packing type and the requirement of particular protections depend on
     characteristics of the equipment and material to be packed, its handling requirements and kind of
     transport chosen (see Appendix I).

     The Appendix IV shows the most suitable type of packing for equipment and materials without
     being exhaustive and applies unless otherwise specified in the Purchase Order or Contract.

     Packing and shipping of dangerous/hazardous material, if any, shall conform to the international
     regulations (IATA,ADR,IMDG,IMO,RID) applicable for the purpose.

     3.3 Packing requirements

     3.3.1 Wood treatment

     All solid wood, used for packing (including wooden pallets) and/or stowage should be treated (heat
     treatment or fumigation) according to the international standard ISPM 15 (IPPC), latest version.
     As these rules are not the same for all countries, the procedure is to be met for the country of final
     destination (see Appendix I). If the Supplier is not aware of the country of final destination he has
     the obligation to inform himself. Use of untreated wood is not acceptable.

     If a Phytosanitary Certificate is required, it has to be issued by the official government authorities.
     Phytosanitary Certificate is normally required in one original and two original copies (duly stamped
     and signed) unless otherwise specified in the regulations of the country of destination.

     3.3.2 Pallets

     When equipment and/or materials are packed on pallets (wood or synthetic), these should be solid
     double deck pallets that provide adequate load support during transportation and storage (under
     not always ideal conditions). The pallets should have a dynamic load capacity, enough to carry the
     mass loaded on the pallet.

     Where feasible the top surface of the pallet must be flat.

     The pallet design must enable safe handling by forklift, cranes etc. and storage on rough surface.

     Pallets have to be covered with wrapping. For shrink foil at least one (1) layer with a thickness of
     175 micron is required. For stretch foil there are at least three (3) layers required.

     All corners, horizontal and vertical, have to be protected with cardboard protection strips. The pallet
     must be tight on all sides with steel or synthetic straps, at least three (3) straps per side.

     3.3.3 Materials

     The quality of packing shall provide maximum protection against damage, breakage and pilferage
     during transport, storage and multiple handling, including handling by e.g. hoisting, lifting devices
     and forklift trucks.

     Any packing made of wood, must be made from new, treated wood (according to ISPM 15 IPPC,
     latest version), with a maximum moisture-percentage of 18%. For Cases, sides with bark, big
     knots, tears or rotten spots are not allowed. Thickness for sides and top must be 12mm at least.
     Used cases, crates and cardboard packing are not allowed.

     3.3.4 Steel- or synthetic straps

     Where useful or required, steel- or synthetic strap shall be used. The strap shall never be nailed.

     3.4 Packaging

     All equipment and materials shall be properly fixed (by bolts, clamps, supporting beams, etc.) in
     such a way that internal movements and/or working loose will be impossible. Under the top cover –
     (roof) depending on the case and crate length, a. sufficient number of strong beams shall be placed
     and properly fixed in order to allow stacking of the cases and crates while avoiding any
     compression.

     Equipment parts and materials which may be subject to damage by vibration and/or shock, must be
     protected using shock-absorbing material.

     All equipment and materials which may be damaged by moisture shall be packed in airtight bags
     in which sufficient desiccant material (e.g. silica gel) is enclosed for the conditions mentioned in the
     appendix (I).

     All openings on the equipment must be closed with wooden or plastic covers to prevent damage to
     the openings and interiors.

     Fragile and loose parts easily damageable pertaining to the equipment must be securely and
     properly packed in a separate case.

     Straw, hay, wood wool and/or newspapers shall not be used as packing and/or filling material. The
     use of “Styrofil” or “Pelaspanpack” as filling material is strongly recommended.

     Spare parts shall be packed separately; they may however be enclosed in main cases as a
     separate package.

     3.5 Waterproofing

     If waterproofed packing is required, cases including the cover shall be internally lined with a strong
     type of waterproof paper or plastic foil. The bottom must be executed water-tight.

     Equipment and materials shall always be packed in a foil (polyethylene or aluminium) for extra
     (double) protection against rainfall. Those foils to be applied in such a way that they are self
     draining.

     3.6 Centre of gravity

     On cases and crates containing goods of which the centre of gravity creates a risk to unbalance in
     the event of handling, the centre of gravity shall be marked clearly using the international symbol
     (Appendix III).

     3.7 Maximum weight and size limitations

     9.3 Appendix III International Symbols



     Designation         Symbol   Explanation

     Fragile, Handle              The symbol should be applied to easily broken cargoes. Cargoes
     with care                    marked with this symbol should be handled carefully and should
                                  never be tipped over or slung.

                                  Any other kind of point load should also be avoided with cargoes
     Use no hooks
                                  marked with this symbol. The symbol does not automatically prohibit
                                  the use of the plate hooks used for handling bagged cargo.

                                  The package must always be transported, handled and stored in
     Top                          such a way that the arrows always point upwards. Rolling, swinging,
                                  severe tipping or tumbling or other such handling must be avoided.
                                  The cargo need not, however, be stored "on top".
                                  Compliance with the symbol is best achieved if the cargo is kept
                                  under the coolest possible conditions. In any event, it must be kept
     Keep away from
                                  away from additional sources of heat. It may be appropriate to
     heat (solar
                                  enquire whether prevailing or anticipated temperatures may be
     radiation)
                                  harmful. This label should also be used for goods, such as butter and
                                  chocolate, which anybody knows should not be exposed to heat, in
                                  order to prevent losses.
                                  The symbol indicates merely where the cargo should be slung, but
                                  not the method of lifting. If the symbols are applied equidistant from
     Sling here
                                  the middle or centre of gravity, the package will hang level if the
                                  slings are of identical length. If this is not the case, the slinging
                                  equipment must be shortened on one side.
                                  Cargoes bearing this symbol must be protected from excessive
     Keep dry                     humidity and must accordingly be stored under cover. If particularly
                                  large or bulky packages cannot be stored in warehouses or sheds,
                                  they must be carefully covered with tarpaulins.
                                  This symbol is intended to provide a clear indication of the position of
                                  the centre of gravity. To be meaningful, this symbol should only be
     Centre of gravity
                                  used where the centre of gravity is not central. The meaning is
                                  unambiguous if the symbol is applied onto two upright surfaces at
                                  right angles to each other.

     No hand truck
                                  The absence of this symbol on packages amounts to permission to
     here
                                  use a hand truck on them.


                                  The maximum stacking load must be stated as "... kg max.". Since
     Stacking                     such marking is sensible only on packages with little loading
     limitation                   capacity, cargo bearing this symbol should be stowed in the
                                  uppermost layer.

                              Stating that the package may be clamped at the indicated point is
     Clamp here
                              logically equivalent to a prohibition of clamping anywhere else.


                              According to regulations, the symbol should either be provided with
     Temperature              the suffix "...°C" for a specific temperature or, in the case of a
     limitations              temperature range, with an upper ("...°C max.") and lower ("...°C
                              min.") temperature limit. The corresponding temperatures or
                              temperature limits should also be noted on the consignment note.

     Do not use               This symbol should only be applied to the sides where the forklift
     forklift truck here      truck cannot be used. Absence of the symbol on other sides of the
                              package amounts to permission to use forklift trucks on these sides.

                              Contact with packages bearing this symbol should be avoided at low
     Electrostatic            levels of relative humidity, especially if insulating footwear is being
     sensitive device         worn or the ground/floor is nonconductive. Low levels of relative
                              humidity must in particular be expected on hot, dry summer days and
                              very cold winter days.
                              A barrier layer which is (virtually) impermeable to water vapor and
                              contains desiccants for corrosion protection is located beneath the
     Do not destroy           outer packaging. This protection will be ineffective if the barrier layer
     barrier                  is damaged. Since the symbol has not yet been approved by the
                              ISO, puncturing of the outer shell must in particular be avoided for
                              any packages bearing the words "Packed with desiccants".
